Summer is upon us and what better time to take advantage of all that Chilliwack has to offer for outdoor recreation! The mountains surrounding our beautiful community are filled with trails just begging to be explored. Whether you’re an avid hiker, or a family looking for a day hike, there is truly something for everyone. From Bridal Falls Provincial Park, to Teapot Hill to Elk Mountain and more; there are trails for all ages and fitness levels. Not in the mood for a hike? Take advantage of some of the beautiful green spaces and enjoy a relaxing picnic. So whether you hike the trails, or relax at Cultus Lake Provincial Park, Chilliwack Lake, or Island 22, we encourage you to get outside and enjoy this beautiful summer weather!

A Very Special Chamber Connections happening in August
We’re so pleased to be holding the 1st Annual Prospera Credit Union Battle of the Businesses Slo-Pitch tournament on Tuesday August 27th at Tzeachten Sports Field. Games start at 12:00 and the final game will be at 6:30. We have 14 teams battling it out for the prestigious Golden Glove trophy (and bragging rights!) The winner also gets to choose the local Not-For-Profit that all the registration fees get donated to! Not a ball player? No problem! Come join us anytime after 12:00 and sample some of the delicious food the Salvation Army Food Truck will be serving up. All proceeds go to support them and the fantastic work they do in our community. And if you find yourself thirsty, head on over to the Beer Garden, with partial proceeds going to a local Not-For-Profit. We’ll also have some fun games and a 50/50 draw! It will be a great time for everyone! We’d like to thank our friends at Tzeachten First Nation for donating the use of their beautiful facilities and our event sponsor- Prospera Credit Union . This event wouldn’t have happened without your amazing support, so thank you!
